Head Gaskets.?

So i have an 04. 6.0l i just fixed the truck, replaced the oil cooler, turbo drain pipe and a few more little things, also added a coolant filter. new degas bottle but reused old cap.

i heard pressure hissing from the old cap figured it was bad got a new one. and no more hissing or puking.

so a few day ago i took her out and got down on her, pull in the driveway. look at the bottle, no coolant puked and i got on it if it was gonna puke it would have then, week later i check the bottle again and noticed a small amount of coolant looks running from the cap. i went turned the cap to see if it was loose and it just started hissing and losing pressure. when the truck running. is my cap bad, or was my cooling system over pressurized,
i hope its a bad cap, and there was not a lot of coolant but there was some that puked out, the coolant level stays the same, and i never noticed it puking till then. like i said i even got down on it and it didnt puke 1 drop.

should i get a new cap again and see if it helps, or are my gaskets blown, my dads truck had blown gaskets and his truck puked coolant all over the bottle, he drove it 35000 miles like that befor he got studs

am i just worried to much or is there a problem.


Thanks.

Need to determine exactly how much pressure is being built in the cooling system, but it sounds like your head gaskets. Either that or your EGR cooler if you still have one.

There's a test kit you can buy from napa for around $35, it'll tell you if you have exhaust gasses in the coolant.

ive seen truck that haven't driving in a few days have pressure i dont think thats a problem. i would say that means your not losing any pressure out of your cooling system. dont thing that its something to worry about.

my egr is removed, and i put a new oil cooler in the truck. and a coolant filter
